Quick side note: For those who thought I should add names, I am horrible at coming up with names. I've written entire short stories (as in several pages of story) without using names because it is so hard for me to come up with ones I like and t... Read more

He pushes back the curtain, slowly taking in the sight of her sleeping form. It shouldn't be this way. She was always the one taking care of others, but ... Read more
I've gotten so many wonderful responses to what I wrote from the writing prompts at the writing seminar that I thought I'd start a challenge for myself. I'd like my sparkfriends to help me out with this challenge. I need to get my brain back int... Read more
Today I went to a local library for a 1 hour seminar about writing and getting published. I was there a half hour early because I took disability transportation, so I was by far the first one there. I got to talk to the author who hosted it at l... Read more
I don't want to get any hopes up, but I just came across another condition for my doctors to consider. I have such a wide range of conditions that don't seem to fit together well, though the last genetics doctor I saw believes there's some 'umbr... Read more
I haven't blogged in awhile, even though I've been meaning to. I end up getting so focused on one thing or another that I forget other things I want to do.

My PICC was removed on Friday and right away my arm opened back up and bled for awhile. The 'fun' was apparently not over. On Sunday at 4am I realized my arm was really itching again. I needed to get the gauze and dressing off. Turns out I was b... Read more
Tuesday was the concert I was waiting for. Previously I explained how well I know the band and why I really wanted to go. It wasn't easy at all, but I was able to get there and enjoyed myself. It was hard on me and I had several things derail my... Read more
My primary doctor agreed that it's time for the TPN to end - so I'm finishing today's bag and having another on Thursday or Friday, then I've gotta find out how to get the PICC removed. My home nurse is coming on Wednesday so I'll ask if they ca... Read more
This doctor ordered high sodium diet is kicking my butt. My entire body from head to toes is a mess of cramps, and my entire abdomen and chest especially is a mess of knives and vices. All this and it's not even bringing up my blood volume, bloo... Read more
